    Ah yes Dictator for life Bush. I don’t believe any president can single handedly rise or sink the economy and anyone who does is a fool

    Henry, you really got this one backwards. Goldman Sachs has been in the driver’s seat since 1980!

    You just keep drawin’ there, Henry. Don’t worry your pretty little mind by glancing at the business pages or watching CNET. Heck, if you understood how business works, you wouldn’t be promoting the interests of billionaires day after day without demanding a cut.

    Historians say that Bill Clinton repealed the Glass ceiling on bankers’ profits, lighting the fire. Then Bush, jr fanned the flames. And President Obama inherited the cinders. But who believes historians?

    Clintonbots say that all the top Economist (i.e., Summers) proved the Glass ceiling was obsolete, stifling the economy. Clinton was right to push the repeal through the Republican Congress, and replace it with executive regulations that allowed all good investments by banks and prohibited all bad investments. Then Bush, jr reversed every one of those regulations, prohibiting all good investments and allowing all bad investments by the banks.

    The Republicans say that Clinton pushed through a law that only allowed banks to loan money to people who could not repay a penny of those loans, and prohibited loans to anyone who could repay, and Bush, jr did all he could, but the Democrats blocked him from repealing those laws.

    So we can believe anyone except those stupid historians.

    And here all this time I thought that the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act combined with corrupt mortgage brokers and financial institutions creating and dealing in shady derivatives were the root causes of the latest recession.

    Market up by thousands under Obama:
    “So what? He didn’t do it. None of that concerns me.”

    Market down temporarily by hundreds under Obama:

    When I look over all these comments it is clear nobody has any idea of why anything happens.

    “When I look over all these comments it is clear nobody has any idea of why anything happens.”

    And here I thought I’d given a good starting point for anyone to research the causes of the last recession. I’d be happy to hear (read?) your thoughts on this and the whys of the slow recovery.
